Sometimes people are called up to be a witness in a reckless or intentional HIV transmission case.
This might be as a clinician who is asked for their medical notes, as someone else who has had sex with one of the parties involved, or just as a friend who’s seen or heard something called in evidence.
If you've been asked to be a witness, it’s important to be sure that you are comfortable with this and that you are not being pressured into testifying.
Clinical staff who are unclear about what their obligations and options are can consult their professional guidelines, including the British HIV Association (BHIVA) guidelines [PDF].
Additionally, anyone can contact THT Direct for advice.
